Apple Releases iPhone Compatible 'Lightning to SD Card' Reader With USB 3 Support

Posted December 8, 2015 at 7:16pm by iClarified
Apple has released an iPhone compatible 'Lightning to SD Card' reader with support for USB 3 speeds on the iPad Pro.

With the Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader, it’s easy to download photos and videos from your digital camera to your iPad or iPhone so you can view them on the gorgeous Retina display and share them with family and friends.

After you insert the SD card into the reader, your iPad or iPhone automatically opens the Photos app, which organizes your photos into Moments, Collections, and Years. And when you use iCloud Photo Library, all your full-resolution photos and videos are stored safely in iCloud and automatically added to the Photos app on all your devices. With iCloud Photo Sharing, you can share your photos and videos with just the people you choose.

The Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader supports standard photo formats, including JPEG and RAW, along with SD and HD video formats, including H.264 and MPEG-4. It supports data transfer at up to USB 3 speeds on iPad Pro, and up to USB 2 speeds on all other iPad and iPhone models supported.

Previously, Apple's Lightning to SD Card adapter only worked with the iPad so this is a big improvement for many photographers.

You can purchase the adapter for $29 from the link below....

One small problem this article does not mention; Format. Apple iPhones will not read AVI (the single most common video format in digital cameras) without the aid of a 3rd party app.

Actually, Canon & Nikon use .MOV. GoPro uses h.264 codec and the MP4 file type. Not sure what camera you are mentioning, but AVI files are compressed which is why professional grade hardware doesn't use it.

Can you do the opposite, from iphone TO the SD reader?

there are these wireless hubs to transfer stored stuff to it that can be transferred to the sd card while it's in the hub, so yes.
